As a group of compounds which has high medicinal values, flavonoids from plant has been domestic and international hot topics on biology and pharmaceutical research. With the continuous progress of the study, medicinal values and the structure-activity relationships of flavonoids are constantly being discovered, and more and more pharmaceutical formulation of flavonoids have also been put into clinical application. Recent research progress of flavonoids in plant and a systematic elaboration for its species structures, physical and chemical properties, pharmacological activities, separation, purification and identification are summarized, then puts forward corresponding solutions for the problems in the production process and prospects its application in the fields of sanitation and medicine.
